The Beeman P1 is a unique combination of Beeman airgun experience and design with the assistance of our German partners engineering and manufacturing skills. The result is a blend of two cultures to make one of the most popular adult air pistols ever produced. A major objective of the P1 design was to give it an "American" flavor, and it seemed nothing but the famous Colt .45 Auto could come closer to being recognized around the world as one of America's finest. Although the P1 is not a replica, many of the design features between the two guns are similar as virtually all shooters hold the .45 in the highest regard.

This spring piston gun is cocked by a single stroke. The "hammer" on the back is really the catch for the cocking lever. Release the "hammer" and the top cocks over the gun until it locks into place. The pellet is loaded directly into the barrel and the unit then snaps back down, ready to fire. Accuracy is increased as the sights move with the entire cocking arm and barrel, never changing position. A scope can even be mounted on the 11mm dovetail grooves along the top of the action. At only 11 inches in length, the small size of the pistol is remarkable considering the velocity. To get the optimum power a full size compression tube must be installed, and this was accomplished by the overhead cocking design of the gun. Furthering the concept, the .177 caliber version of the piston has a dual power mode - cocking the gun to the first "lock point" will result in "low" power, around 380 fps which is still better than many other air pistols. Cocking the gun a bit further will click into the "high" power position for a full 600 fps making the P1 one of the most powerful spring piston airguns ever made! The full compression tube also results in a nicely balanced pistol as it runs the full length of the gun.

The two stage trigger is adjustable from the 28 ounce factory setting. The wide trigger blade has a serrated surface that makes the trigger pull feel extra light and gives a smooth, controlled feel to the unit. The incredible trigger is constantly one of the things that people comment on being one of the best features of the gun.

I Don't recommend this one.

The only good thing about this gun is the grips.

Just awful lacks in power shoots crooked, cost over $500. This gun should cost any more than $100. dollars, to me this is a real peice of junk, don't know if just this one is defective but I'm very disappointed with it.

By VMRMarch 8, 2024 Verified Purchase

Quite simply, this thing is a beast. Really well crafted, too.

By VincentJuly 6, 2023 Verified Purchase

Love this thing. Build quality is incredible.

By Marcus AdrianUSAAugust 13, 2020

Use a pellet seater so the pellet doesn't damage the breech seal, I use a simple plastic wall anchor and it seats the pellet about 1/32 inch within the muzzle, no risk of damaging the breech seal at all.

This gun is very fun, easy to cock (i'm 60 yrs old with a bad back), accurate at 3-5 meters to shoot handheld and get 1" groups. Loud but not super loud.

nothing, it's good as is

By robertUSANovember 23, 2016

back in 1980 i purchased this pellet gun (P-1) pistol and still shoot it to this day, i paid $94.00 c.o.d. great gun, also picked up the (R-1) for $125.00 c.o.d, also the (R-7) for $140.00, and the (C-1) carbine for $105.00 all came c.o.d. which beeman stopped doing some time in the late 80s. anyway these were top of the line quality back then. i could sit outside and shoot locusts out of the tops of the trees, my neighbors would be amazed. but now i can hardly see that far but i can still hit the tree. i don't know much about the newer beemans but if their 1/2 as good the 80s were made you can't go wrong!!

just a drop of oil ever so often

none except for the skyrocketing prices.

By DennyUSAAugust 25, 2016

I've had mine now for a year, When I first received it or i could not hit a side of a barn, shot a thousand rounds thru it and could not hit anything, 6 to 20 inches away from center target at 25 ft., had friends shoot it same, So i sent it back two weeks got it back and i was told nothing wrong. So i started to try assorted ammo, mines in 20 cal same as my Sheridan silver streak (convenience) I've shot nine different types of 20 cal pellets, the very worst on consistency are the Benjamin 14.3 gr. would shoot 10 to 20 inches off center at 25 ft the very best are FTS 11.2 gr. I shoot JBS EXACT mostly because i can still get them. The FTS were discontinued a couple of months after i discovered they were the best for me, and i searched the internet until i bought them all 16 tins was all i could find, sights are set for 35 ft JBS ARE REAL GOOD and i know shooting skills take time to develop, I would have to say that it is a hard gun to shoot well, I have trouble with center fire pistols too so i spose mostly it's I have over six thousand rounds thru it no issues, other than O rings at the barrel breech, went to Fastenal franchise in my town bought 100 o'rings for for 8 bucks

good trainer

should be sold with matched pellets, better front sight

By LwmJuly 18, 2016

I bought two of theses when beeman was still in I think Santa Rosa buy Napa some where . My son and I drove to the show room to get them and test at there little indoor range. This was back in 1990 I believe any way we still have them and over 200,000 pellets later in each shooting silhouettes have had to replace transfer block manny times until I designed and built my own . They are fantastic on small game I have bushnell 6-18 rifle scopes on them and they shoot sub minuite groups at 20 yes . Great gun guys you can't go wrong

Just solid pistols once you get a good transfer block

Non really

By JamesUSAJuly 1, 2016

Second to none in quality and accuracy. Now I understand why others say it is an heirloom piece.

Quality Accuracy Legit M1911 feel

Cocking grip is awkward, still figuring it out. Forces are OK, but want to avoid gripping the rear sight.

By JamesUSAJune 29, 2016

Received my P1 on time and in good condition. It is amazingly well made with attention to detail. Out of the box I mounted a scope as my 70 year old eyes need a little assistance. It took a couple outings to the range to zero it in. At first I was concerned that the accuracy was not there but, I persevered. I tried several different pellet types and have settle on the RWS Meisterkugen wadcutters for target shooting at 25 yards. Once I figured out how to hold it, my accuracy improved greatly. I'm glad I purchased it and highly recommend it. It is a challenge to shoot well but once mastered is thoroughly satisfying.

Well made, powerful.

Can be a steep learning curve to shoot well. Somewhat expensive.

I just received my Beeman P1 pistol in .22 cal. (great service as usual from Airgun Depot). This pistol is the high quality we have come to expect from Beeman. I familiarized myself with the P1 and headed to my backyard to sight it in. As it turned out I didn't need to adjust anything as the P1 was already sighted in. My first five shots could be covered by a quarter. I shot a couple charcoal briquettes that exploded when hit. The P1 hits hard! I had to curtail my testing because THIS PISTOL IS LOUD. When shooting the H&N copper-plated Field Target Trophy Power pellets, it's as least as loud as my Browning Buckmark .22LR. The lead JSB Exact Jumbo Express were slightly less loud. Still, I really like this pistol, but it won't be as useful for squirrel control due to the loud report. My Hatsan model 25 in .22 is quiet by comparison. If you want an, accurate, hard hitting, high-quality air pistol, the Beeman P1 is a great choice. I rated the P1 at 4 stars due to the loudness. If it were a bit quieter, I would rate the P1 at 5 stars.

It is LOUD

Is the Beeman P1 de-tuned for Canada?

asked Andre from Canada


Adam from USA

Hey gang, the specs says 460 fps but the description says 500 fps. Help!

asked Andrew G.

Is the HW45 identical to the Beeman P1 or are there some slight differences? Thanks

asked Jerry

P1 pellet pistol break in

Randy from USA

beeman imports enough product from weihrauch they put the beeman name on it it's the hw45


Is the HW45 identical to the Beeman P1 or are there some slight differences? Thanks

asked Brock

I purchased my P1 in the 1980's. It was made by Weihrauch for Beeman for the American market to reach up to 600 fps. max Velocity in .177. The Weihrauch HW 75 specs are 410 fps in .177, per the info on there web site. European specs are limited by law to reduce the max velocity, as I understand it. The Beeman P1 I purchased came with a lifetime warrantee, but has never had an issue. The Weihrauch HW 75 has a one year warrantee, so does the P1 currently available. Read this for the history: Robert and Toshiko Beeman sold Beeman Precision Airguns Inc. on April 1, 1993. I think the P1 is out of production, as the new conglomerate is now marketing mostly, if not exclusively, cheap Chinese made guns in department stores. The German and English rifles that made Beeman a legend are no longer listed on, including the Beeman P1. I looked all over and could not find any european guns. I still see some P1's out there ( If you can get one, do it. I am confident if it's anything like mine, you won't be sorry. It is one of my oldest possessions and it's still like new, as is my Beeman HW70. Those guns where made to last a lifetime. I installed the Beeman exotic hardwood combat grips and Beeman Blue ribbon 1.5x scope on mine a long time ago. The gun is a work of art. When Robert Beeman was running Beeman Precision Airguns Inc., the guns where the best in the world. Like the Rolls Royce, those days are gone.

Robert from USA

They are the same gun the name is changed to the beeman because beeman imports them to the usa.

Will this gun kill groundhogs?

asked Tyler

No one needs to be hunting with a 600 fps pellet pistol. That is not enough power for a clean, quick, humane kill. Without the immediate kill power, shooting even varmints amounts to simple torture, and that is not what hunting is about, even if it is just shooting rats. To kill varmints, get one of those rifles that have greater than 12 ft lb power, they will do the trick if you place the shot correctly. Sure, there are anecdotes about how someone somewhere killed something with a pellet pistol, but for 99% of varmint hunting, the educated hunter will get a powerful and accurate arm sufficient for a one shot quick kill, and learn to hit what he or she is aiming at. Pellet pistols are for targets and plinking, not killing.


No. I shot a ground hog at close range with 15 rounds of 380 from an auto pistol. He made it back to his burrow and disappeared. Very tough hide.


Perhaps, with a direct "eye" or "open mouth", to give direct access to the brain. Otherwise, it would not kill a groundhog immediately - only to allow the probable eventual death due to infections, etc. Personally, I would NOT recommend this gun - or any air gun - for killing groundhogs (assuming the questioner is referring to the "Wood Chuck", and not the smaller gopher type animals.

Hugh from USA

Is this appropriate for discouraging deer?

asked Ira Sykes

what is the best pellet and grain to use for the beeman p1.

asked troy from USA

I've been using RWS Meisterkugeln Pistol .177, 7.0 grains ammo with amazing results. Great for plinking and for pesky critters.

Jon from USA

I have been using Crown Magnum and they seem to work super. I have also tried the new Gamo PBA Gold .177 cal and they do the job as well especially against some pesky varmints.
